It’s funny how a bride and groom think very differently about their wedding day. And the Bride versus Groom infographic from DesignMantic at the end of this post sums it up nicely.
Why is it that quite composed calm women turn into some kind of Bridezilla once they name the day with every detail subject to painstaking planning and stress whereas guys sail through it all without a care (unless they are told by the bride-to-be they need to take an interest, or else)?
I can’t really moan – I had a lovely wedding myself though I didn’t stress about anything too much. I didn’t have time to get involved in too much detail because of my job.
Also living 250 miles from where we married I relied on others to choose many of the items with the result that not much other than my dress and the color scheme were my choice in the end.
I sometimes think it’s a shame they didn’t have Pinterest in my day. That has so many lovely ideas for weddings.
But then I would have been green with envy over all those luscious pictures and would have stressed about having something equally as lovely for the cake, invitations, chair covers, flowers, favors, decorations, bridesmaids dresses, gifts for the ushers etc etc ad infinitum …
What is sad is that often a lot more thought goes into a wedding than into a marriage and the commitment that is being made. But then I don’t think there’s any more thought from the guys in that respect despite them not getting involved in the detail of the wedding. Most of us just go into it hoping for the best. I know, I did.
Anyway enjoy this Perfect Wedding Bride Versus Groom infographic.

That picture summed it all up. And though I am not married one thing I would like to add is that the weddings must more of a personal affairs with more of emotions rather than a display of wealth. And here in India weddings are more of a show off and that is why they are called the Big Fat Indian Weddings.

Thanks Reema. A lot of cultures have very expensive weddings for those who can afford them. It’s just a pity when money could be better spent in giving the couple a good future, but we all love a good celebration too 🙂

The picture above has summarized it very well. Weddings are bringing two loved ones together so I think they should not be expensive.
Thanks for your comment Emily. I don’t have a problem with expensive weddings as an idea, just that these days many couples feel they have to have a expensive wedding that is beyond their means. Simple weddings can be just as wonderful and romantic as expensive ones, and often more so.
